Now operating in the UK, US, Australia and the Republic of Ireland, Zeebox has been updating its apps to integrate with Sky and Virgin Media set-top boxes in the UK, operating as a remote control and providing more functionality to its popular app.
Zeebox also allows some broadcasters to create dedicated interactive experiences that viewers can access by ‘checking in’ to particular shows via the app. This has led to BSkyB, Comcast, NBCUniversal and Viacom backing the company, helping it to become the defacto choice for second screen viewing.
Zeebox wouldn’t confirm for us whether the app is coming to BlackBerry 10, only hinting that it would “likely” come in the future.
